finally did what so many of us have been begging him to do. he went on offense. he gave a name and a face to the republican "just say no" obstructionism. wannabe speaker john boehner. he called out boehner and the gop for doing nothing but root for failure. he reminded us what makes democrats different than republicans. in short, he reminded us why we elected him in the first place. this is the kind of performance by the president we're going to see apparently every day from the democrats if they are going to stay into power. >>> plus, secretary of state hillary clinton, general petraeus and even the vatican are now calling on pastor terri jones to abandon his plan to burn korans on september 11th, but the florida pastor is not backing down. tonight, i'm going to ask a pastor at jones' church if his colleague is willing to take thç heat when his protests air on tv sets in every middle east cafe inflaming muslim extremists and perhaps well endangering the lives of americans. >>> also, the professional left has been gunning for rahm emanuel and may get its wish if he leaves to run for mayo
'll tell us how the administration is about to go with a prominent republican. let's begin with brianna keilar live in washington. congress is back in session for the big midterm election push and they've got a very big issue on their hands in the matter of whether or not to extend these bush tax cuts. this is -- this is going to be an interesting one to watch in the next couple of days. >> and this is the big issue, jim. this is the issue that in really less than four weeks because they're out of there again. they're out of washington again ahead of the election season, this is what they're going to be dealing with. and obviously, the issue that continues to resinate is republican leader john boehner who had said that he would go along with extending the tax cuts for everyone except for the wealthiest earns, which, of course, is what president obama has gone for. but it's created a jumbled message among republicans. because look at what some other republicans are saying. you have mitch mcconnell who is saying, no, i'm pushing legislation to keep these tax cuts in place across the board
resourcefulness and faith.ad no matter what had been thrown at us, we would emerge stronger because of it. otng i've seen in the nine years since suggests to me that i was wrong. >> jon: that is a >> good morning evnderyone, it's sunday, september 12th, we start with a fox news alert. iran ha vin another chae of heart. their state tv reporting they're now willing to free american hiker sarah shourd ice. we have a live report on all of this in moments. >> and do democrats think their leadership is a liability? the latest strategy ahead of the november elections making it a choice between them or the g.o.p. and ignoring t white house. >> and hurricane igorr igor, depending where you live now the fourth of the season and getting stronger this morning, we're tracking igor, storm, igor in our extme weather center. rick will have that news for you. our slogan from rust in florida. are you looking for morng news, spanning east to west. you've got to catch, aaly, clayton, dave, they're the i best. >> it's "fox & friends." >> don't stir the pot. >> the coetition, russ versus chas for the s
're going to attend the dedication. senator harkin said republicans won't let us do it? what about the political fall-out if republicans were on tv not letting democrats pass tax cuts for the middle class? >> i was in the hall talking to harkin about that. again, now, harkin is a liberal democrat who normally would be gung-ho to do this. but i was astonished by what he said, that the republicans won't let us do it. the democrats are in charge of the senate. if harry reid wanted to bring up the bill that would allow tax cuts to be kept for everybody under 250 and raise it on that incremental amount, harry reid could bring it up. the republicans would filibuster it. there would be a vote. that could happen if they wanted to do it. but there aren't enough democrats in the caucus of democrats in the senate who are willing to do it. and there's nothing more i can say. they are afraid to do it. and they're afraid of the ads the republicans are going to run against them. >> howard finemann, as always, thanks for your time. >>> let's turn to chris hayes, the washington editor of the nation

today, largely because it's not very useful. the white house released the president's speech yesterday so everybody could get their head around it and read it in advance. president obama doesn't always stick to the script, but we have a general sense what he'll say. as we wait for the president to begin we're going to tell you about some of the focus points of his speech. now, joining us to talk about it, we've got good people here who know a lot about education. first of all, our cnn education contributor steve perry on the left of the screen in hartford, connecticut. with me here no new york, tony mullen, teaches at-risk students. here with me. he was the 2009 teacher of the year. national teacher of the year. cnn suzanne malveaux is with the president in philadelphia and senior correspondent ed henry at the white house. let me start with steve. steve, what's your sense of what the president is going to say and what value this is going to bring to students and, of course, not just the students across the country who will hear him but their parents and teachers, more importantly? >> w
at that closed door meeting with the president. what have you learned? >> democratic congressional leaders used that strategy session at the white house today to press the president to be more aggressive in helping them campaign in the final weeks before november's elections. i'm told that house speaker nancy pelosi spoke up and said the congressional democrats really want to see him do more of the kind of rally he held in wisconsin this week where he amped up the rhetoric for democratic policies and against republicans especially when it comes to the issue of jobs and the economy. i'm told that in this meeting, the president made clear there would be more campaign events coming, more are already actually on the books beyond the three rallies that have been as publicly in neve metro, pennsylvania, ohio. these sources we talked to insist the tone of the meeting was not hostile. however, democratic congressional leaders did want to hear the promise directly from the president's lips he was going to help them. i can tell you that congressional democratic sources i talked to for some timex pressed

. joining us now from the north lawn of the white house austin goolsby the president's adviser. the president was pretty critical of john boehner in his speech in cleveland. boehner sfas the president is serious about finally focusing on jobs a good start would be taking the advice of his recently departed budget director and freezing all tax rates coupled with cutting federal spending to where it was before all the bailouts, government takeovers, and stimulus spending sprees. he is referring to peter orszag the budget director during the obama administration who wrote a piece in the "new york times" this week for the next two years keep tax rates including for the wealthy exactly where they are right now. >> look, i think representative boehner is a little confused about what peter orszag was suggesting and threw in on that second bid let's go back to the final bush budget of 2008 as if that were the gold standard we wanted to return to when in fact that was the final culmination of exactly the policy that got us into this mess. >> to be precise peter orszag was not recommendi
